Desire for Anima
25 May - 27 Jun 2010
Contemporary by Angela Li gallery presents Desire for Anima, an exhibition of new oil paintings by Israeli artist Yigal Ozeri. His paintings of young women are unusual for their uncanny realism and psychologically engaging presence. This is achieved by Ozeri’s using both still photography and video in their initial stages, and painting the final works with thousands of tiny brushstrokes which animate the paintings’ surfaces.
